Herman R. Geyer Sr., 81, of Ashland, died Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, after a short illness.
He was born Oct. 15, 1936, in Ashland, a son of the late Albert Geyer and Cora Bullion Geyer.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Patsy Geyer; four sisters; and 12 brothers.
In the early 60's Herman was drafted and served a tour of duty with the U.S. Army. He owned and operated a masonry business and was a 50 year member of International Bricklayers & Allied Craftworkers Union. His work is reflected on many buildings and homes throughout the Tri-State area. Rightfully so, he was proud of his work.
Everyone that knew him loved him. He had a huge heart and was always willing to lend a hand. He had a deep love for farming and was still farming until his illness. Feeding his cattle gave him purpose.
Herman was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
He is survived by three children, Herm (Belinda) Geyer, Becky Geyer-Howerin, and Chris Geyer; two grandchildren, Ray and Rachel Geyer; two great-grandchildren, Brayden and Isaiah Geyer; two sisters, Margaret Kelly and Goldie Capps; a number of nieces and nephews; and lastly, his loyal companions and farm hands, Willie and Gypsy.
Herman was one of a kind and will be deeply missed by all!
